Researchers at the IWK Health Centre and Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Western University, London, Ontario, Canada and the CQ University, Adelaide, South Australia are interested in better understanding how parents think about their children’s sleep and what parents do to help children sleep at night.
If you are a parent of a generally physically healthy 2- to 10-year old child and would be willing to help us with this study, we look forward to hearing from you!
Our study is conducted online, in three separate steps. The first step involves completing a series of questionnaires about your child’s sleep, your thoughts and beliefs about sleep, parenting, and daytime behaviours. These questionnaires take about 1.5 hours in total, but you’ll have 2 weeks to finish them, which makes it a bit more manageable. They don’t have to be done all at once.
The second step involves telling us a bit about your child and family and completing at least 4 of 7 sleep diaries over the course of one week. Each sleep diary should take about 15-20 minutes.
In part 3, which takes place month after part 1, you’ll re-do some of the questionnaires. We’re interested in seeing what kind of difference, if any, a month makes. This should take about an hour, and, again, can be completed in more than one sitting.
In appreciate for participation; parents will receive an on-line gift card to Amazon.com or a major fast food chain (e.g., Tim Horton’s, McDonald’s, Subway) depending on the country in which you live.
Your participation can play an important role in understanding children’s sleep. Ultimately, you’ll be helping parents and professionals help children sleep better at night.
